Is MSNBC right about this?

    According to MSNBC's Donny Deutsch, Arizona doesn't recognize MLK Day. Is that true? Everything I can find says that all 50 states recognize the holiday, and that AZ, SC, and NH were among the last states to do so. What's the truth? Anyone here from AZ?

      At least you did your research.... you can't really expect that from MSNBC now, can you?

      I remember something about that, a Superbowl was to be played there but backed out or was going to because they didn't recognize MLK day.

      I think it has since changed.

      In AZ it's known as "Martin Luther King, Jr./Civil Rights Day".

        That should be the best source, LaLo. So MSNBC was wrong??

          I suppose you can argue that since the holiday isn't MLK day exclusively MSNBC was correct but of course, that's a stretch but one typical of the left.

            Because they call it MLK/Civil Rights Day? That's crazy!

              There's a reason why that network is known MS LSD! LOL

      It was approved by the voters in 1992 after being previously rejected.

      So, if MSNBC is saying it doesn't recognize it they are lying...again.

      That says that AZ made it a recognized holiday in 1992.
